I have not read a lot of discussion about the optimal conditions for seeing FBr. It seems like it might be more noticeable under optimal viewing conditions, since one tends to see everything better under optimal conditions. But if you have a set that has it bad, and you watch the type of material that seems to generate it the most (BD media seem to produce it more than satellite, for example), and you are the type to notice it, then it would seem you'll notice it whether you're watching during the day or the night.
OTOH, some sets don't seem to have it as bad or to any noticeable degree, and some people appear to be much less sensitive to it or are not bothered by it (or don't obsess with actively looking for it). This means that that is really no way to tell in advance whether you
will be bothered by FBr or to what degree. Again, it depends on whether you get a set with noticeable FBr and, if so, whether it bothers you with the material you
usually watch in your
typical viewing environment.
It kind of reminds me somewhat of the old discussion regarding rainbows on DLP projectors. If someone asked, "Will rainbows bother me if I buy a DLP projector," the answer would be, "Maybe yes, maybe no."
